Timeless Change

Bali Exhibition by Adrian and Runi Palar at the Ganesha Gallery of the Four Seasons Resort at Jimbaran Bay November 5 – December 7, 2009.


(9/28/2009)

The juxtaposition of the respective work of an artist couple is a map of both their individual and shared aesthetics, set against the subtlebackground of their interpersonal relationship. The remarkable journey of Runi and Adrian Palar began at the Indonesian Pavilion at the New York World's Fair of 1964 when the young designer from Bandung met a beautiful young dancer from Yogyakarta.

Adrian, a graduate of the arts faculty at Bandung's prestigious Institute of technology (ITB) had begun his studies as a modern painter with two of today's most famous Indonesian artists, Srihadi Sudarsono and But Mochtar before switching to a new course in design and interior architecture. Influenced by post-modern Cubism, his transition was virtually seamless because of Adrian's self-declared "fascination with the horizontal and vertical lines."

In 1970, Adrian would urge Runi to experiment in designing silver jewelry to channel her creative energy, a radical idea because silverwork had previously been the exclusive domain of men. Within a period of less than a decade, Runi's startling modern designs made her one of Indonesia's top young jewelry designers. In 1976 she would brand her own line of jewelry under the company name of RUNA Jewelry managed by Adrian.

During this same period, Adrian ran an independent design firm, a feat he accomplished without any interruption in his painting output. In 1970, along with noted fellow artists A.D. Pirous, Gregorius Sidharta and Sunaryo – Adrian founded and exhibited with DECENTA (Design Centre Association) Despite a busy schedule, Adrian explained that painting remained for "the best exercise to sharpen the eye and visual intuition. Through it I kept alive a visceral connection with my innate sense of aesthetics."

In 1986 the couple moved to Bali. On the island, Runi continued to win both domestic and international awards and in 2001 set up a small but excellent museum documenting her works just south of Ubud. Among other honors she was prominently featured in a 2005 exhibition held in Amsterdam's Tropical Museum.

During this same period Adrian began increasingly serious about his painting. Inspired by the vertical and horizontal, he produced a series of colorful gem-like contemplative canvasses entitled "Timeless Change."

Alone and apart, Adrian and Runi mirror the essence of a mature master not seeking glory or fame but a pure expression of personal joy. Adrian's painting are complemented by a new collection of jewelry by "the other master," Runi Palar, creating a full circle of creativity.
